Dinner In The Sky, another in our series looking at some of the more unusual eating establishments around the globe. This one is different because it is situated around 150 feet in the sky!
This one is present in around 60 countries. Starting in Belgian in 2007, David Ghysels who owned a marketing company and Stefan Kerkhofs, a bungee jump organiser partnered to create an aerial based dinner for the Jeunes Restaurateurs d’Europe association.
This led to them being contacted by people from around the world who wanted to replicate the experience. They decided to go down the franchise route.
By 2009 Dinner In The Sky they were operating in more than a dozen countries including China and Canada.
Michael and Janeen Hinden discovered the concept at a trade fair in 2008. They tested the concept at a New Years party, and eventually put the plans in motion for a permanent location in Las Vegas. Costing $4 million the location was to have a ground based restaurant as well as the high flying set up.
We can take to new heights with our gourmet catering options, but admittedly not 150ft dinner in the sky.
